Repairing exterior wall


I see damage like that every day...Remove the siding and sheathing in those areas and post pictures of the damage to the frame for useful answers on how to proceed.

Can't post pictures when I take it off. There is no internet there. I'm trying to get all the input I can on what to do before I head back down there Saturday to start

Repairing exterior wall


we should have a sticky note with these photos on it with the caption "see what happens when you build too close to the ground!"

no offense kujo, after all you didn't build the place, but this is typical with slab on grade built at ground level.

Repairing exterior wall


I have removed the siding all the way around the house and cut out the bottom 1 foot of the entire house and put new studs in. The house had actually shifted from the rot and was hell to lift back up. I found two floor joist that had rotted along with 3 square feet of upstairs bedroom wall and floor along with the top plate of the first floor. I am reusing the old plywood since i cut off all the rot and putting it on top and using treated plywood for the bottom run.

Also i found that I have been letting little black ants live rent free inside my walls and we know how renters are they had tunneled thru alot of the wood.

Back wall of the house is rotted four feet high. Cutting that wall I cut thru some electrical and the toilet drain line. The kitchen needed rewiring anyways as it was tied in with the living room and part of the upstairs.

How do I patch the pvc drain for the toilet. Cutting it out and doing it right is not an option since I ran a screw thru the pipe as well close to the slab
